Confirmation of production of element 110 by the208Pb(64Ni,n) reaction Academic Article uri icon


  • We report the experimental confirmation of the production of element 110. In the bombardment of a208Pb target with a 309-MeV64Ni beam, we have observed two chains of time- and position-correlated events. Each chain consisted of the implantation of an evaporation residue followed by the emission of particles. We attribute these two chains to the decay of271110 produced with a cross section of 8.3-5.3+11pb.
